An original television anime titled Skate-Leading☆Stars was announced by animation studio J.C.Staff on Monday. The anime series will both air on television and stream online in 2020.

Gorou Taniguchi—known for helming titles such as Code Geass: Hangyaku no Lelouch (Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion), Junketsu no Maria (Maria the Virgin Witch), and Planetes—is serving as the chief director. Kuroshitsuji (Black Butler) manga creator Yana Toboso is drawing the original character designs.

Cast
Kensei Maeshima: Yuuma Uchida (Macross Δ)
Hayato Sasugai: Makoto Furukawa (Tsukipro The Animation)
Reo Shinozaki: Hiroshi Kamiya (Re:␣Hamatora)

The anime will tell the story of high school students as they compete in groups in a unique form of figure skating called "Skate-Leading."

i wonder how much of anime J.C staff want to make in 2020 maybe 20 anime lol
anyway it's better if they risk it with an original anime anime instead of destroying a good manga or LN this time .
i'll wait until this end then i may watch it if the score was high.

Looking at the director and character designer, I feel like this might be quite great or at least an enjoyable watch. But, the cover design and the story description make this anime look like one of those "hey, we have cute guys and . . . more cute guys!"
Well, I love cute guys, but if I am watching an anime, I also want to like the characters and the story.

Imagine releasing this in the same year as Yuri on Ice Movie. This is pretty much dead on arrival.

Oh yes we were born to ship VictYuri *gay bass drop*

Jokes aside, It´s JC, so big no no for me. I don´t even know if the director of Geass involved is a good or bad thing.

not enough to go off of yet, could be good, could be bad. The picture is really good, and Goro taniguchi can make a good show, kinda varies

At first I thought it was some skateboarding anime, wich sounded great, but it ended up being some queer on ice lookalike. Yes, I should read things slower.

Looks interesting to say the least but then again debating whenever it is worth the watch. I got super exited when I found YOI and I'm impatiently waiting for the movie to come out. This just seems copied...Unless the creators of this one come up with a different, and interesting storyline then I am willing to watch it through.

Maybe it will try to be the new King of Prism? Who knows.
